AnaMary Bilbao is a Portuguese-Spanish visual artist born in Lisbon (Portugal).

She works across a range of different media including photography, drawing, sound, and moving image. Through the combination of these elements, she often seeks to start fictional narratives that put into question the idea of a single truth. As Bilbao states, “there is no truth beforehand, only connections, interruptions, and incompleteness.”

Her work has been recently exhibited at Photo Basel (Basel), International Studio & Curatorial Program (New York), Field Projects (New York), Paris Photo / Curiosa (Paris), MAAT – The Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (Lisbon), Opening Arco Madrid (Madrid), Leal Rios Foundation (Lisbon), PLMJ Foundation (Lisbon), Galeria Avenida da Índia / Galerias Municipais - EGEAC (Lisbon), among others. Bilbao's videos have been screened in venues such as Anthology Film Archives (New York), MoMA - Museum of Modern Art (New York), Hangar CIA (Lisbon), or Novo Negócio / Zé dos Bois Gallery (Lisbon).

AnaMary Bilbao has been the recipient and/or shortlisted to various distinguished Portuguese awards such as: Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Grant for studying visual arts abroad (2023/2024); Luso-American Development Foundation Artist Residency in the U.S.A. Grant (2022); 1st edition of FLAD Drawing Award (2021); 13th edition of EDP Foundation’s New Artists Award (2019); FCT PhD Fellowship (2015-19).

Currently lives in New York City where she is studying Film and Animation at Mono No Aware (Brooklyn) with the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (2023/24).
